How can sounds be queer? What is the relationship between such sounds and the spaces in which they resound and which they represent? How are gender and sexuality related to sonic queerness and its spatial dimensions? Are media representations of queer constituencies, both sexual and gendered, clichéd, transgressive, or neither of these alternatives?

For the past 30 years the critical field of queer musicology has advanced a queer studies agenda by promoting the destabilization of heteronormativity as the taken for granted, dominant social order. Speakers include the musicology staff and queer studies scholar from Finland and abroad. Keynotes include professors Caryl Flinn and Stan Hawkins, and Freya Jarman.

The seminar is organized jointly by the musicology department, the IIPC and the gender fraction of the Finnish Doctoral Programme for Music Research.
